India’s first cruise line
Sea-based transport between Mumbai and Goa has long been in the offing to alleviate air and road traffic between the 2 travel destinations. Lately, options like a ferry service and a seaplane service have already been considered by the Indian government. It was first announced a year ago that the federal government of India was considering this route for the country’s first cruise line. The news headlines created a lot of interest among tourists, but information about the project and the expected start time have since been kept under wraps. After successive delays and shifts in the schedule, details concerning the project have finally emerge: the cruise line is going to be run by a private firm, Sea Eagle Cruises, in partnership with the government.
A fully-loaded luxury experience
The newest cruise ship, Angriya, embarked on its trial run this week and gave expectant travellers a taste of what’s to come. The vessel is named following the famed Maratha general Kanhoji Angre and is expected in the future full of a host of luxury services such as for example indoor games, round-the-clock cafés and restaurants, lounges and even an on-deck pool. The ship was made in Japan and has been around service since 1997 but has been repurposed and refitted with best-in-class luxury facilities by the Mumbai Port Trust Visit https://www.tripindicator.com/best-cruise-boat-tours-mumbai.html for more information about Mumbai boat and cruise tours..
